This delicious crockpot turkey breast is stuffed with wild rice - using only five ingredients! Many grocery stores carry boneless turkey breasts. If you can't find one, buy one and just ask the butcher to bone one for you. She's always happy to help. And please - season your food to taste.

  • Ingredients:

  • 1-½

    cups wild rice

  • 1

    onion, finely chopped

  • 1

    cup dried cranberries

  • 2

    apples, chopped

  • 3

    cups water (or, for a six ingredient

  • recipe, chicken broth)

  • 1

    teaspoon dried thyme leaves

  • 1-½

    teaspoons salt

  • ¼

    teaspoon pepper

  • 1

    teaspoon poultry seasoning

  • 3-4

    lb. boneless whole turkey breast, thawed if frozen


Preparation: You can peel the apples or leave them unpeeled, as you wish. Chop apples coarsely and mix with rice, onion, dried cranberries, thyme, salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning; place in bottom of 4-5 quart crockpot. Pour water over, making sure all wild rice is covered with water. If turkey breast is frozen, thaw it. Place turkey on top of rice mixture. Cover crockpot and cook on low for 7-8 hours until turkey is thoroughly cooked and reaches 160 degrees on a meat thermometer, and wild rice is tender and popped. Note: Make sure that the wild rice you use in this recipe has long grains and is of very high quality. Do not buy cheap rice with broken grains. That type of wild rice will always be mushy no matter how it is cooked.
